Re: Jb magnets

We're very fortunate to have very few JBs.  I give credit to using DOOM quite
a few years ago (haven't even been able to buy it for years.)  It's supposed
to take a while to work, but remain effective for years.  I don't grow roses,
except for miniatures and a couple of old ones, because of the deer.  I
also don't have any rose of sharon, but my neighbor has a row of them
along the property line, and I would almost be glad to have JBs to get rid of
then.  These are old white ones with reddish-purple in the center, not really 
pretty, but they seed into my vegetable garden like crazy.  It's just about 
the worst weed there, and not pretty like the colmbines and johnny-jump-ups.

the yard and they devoured the white ROS that was 10 feet from the blue 
one's placement.  I hoped though I could keep an eye on it.  However, the 
other two ROS never, ever gave me a single volunteer plant, but Blue Satin 
seeds like a maniac everywhere.  The other two ROS have been ripped out and 
now, with the arrival of swarms of JBs on this one, it's gonna be a goner, 
too.  Can't do much at the moment though as a Clematis is using it for 
support (it's about 7 feet now), but it is coming out this year.  ROS, never
